“I see this device as having a very important role in limiting the risk of catheter balloon urethral injury and giving confidence to both doctors and nurses that the balloon is actually in the bladder prior to inflation.”
Dr David A. Bloom, Professor of Urology, University of Michigan Medical Centre, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
“This device has the potential to eliminate the near daily consults our service receives to deal with patients who have suffered urethral injury due to inadvertent catheter balloon inflation.”
Ronald L. Hrebinko MD, Urological Surgeon, UPMC, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“The TUC Safety Valve has undoubted clinical potential in inpatient and outpatient settings for decreasing morbidity associated with urethral catheterisation. I think it should become a compulsory component to the catheterisation process.”
Mr. Greg Jack, Consultant Urologist, The Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.
“The beauty about this device is the simplicity in design and proven clinical benefit in preventing traumatic urethral injuries during catheterisation.”
